| Last updated
Thibaut Courtois spoke to four different media outlets in four different languages following Real Madrid's UEFA Super Cup win over Eintracht Frankfurt.
Champions League holders Real defeated Europa League winners Frankfurt 2-0 out in Helsinki on Wednesday evening after goals from David Alaba and Karim Benzema.
Goalkeeper Courtois made a number of vital saves and it means he's now kept a clean sheet in all four final appearances for Los Blancos.
The 30-year-old has become a leader in the Real dressing room and stepped up at full-time.
"The last few months we've had three finals, and three times a clean sheet." 😏— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) August 10, 2022

Per Archie Rhind-Tutt, Courtois took part in four interviews back-to-back and switched languages with ease.
It's believed Courtois can speak Dutch, French, English and Spanish while having a strong understand of German and Portuguese.
No surprise he's the first port of call when a journalist wants to chat.
The Belgium international joined Real from Chelsea in 2018 and the transfer was initially criticised, given his ties to bitter rivals Atletico Madrid.
Courtois spent three years on loan at Atletico and even helped them win La Liga in 2014, the same year they suffered a Champions League final defeat to Real.
He's overcome that however and is one of the best shot stoppers in world football.
"The last three finals we’ve played we’ve kept a clean sheet. When Madrid plays a final they usually win it, it’s the DNA of this club and that’s why it’s the biggest," Courtois told Movistar Plus in a post-match interview.
Real won La Liga last season and are hoping to retain the title for the first time in 15 years.
The World Cup takes place in November this year and it'll impact the domestic campaign in a major way.
Courtois continued: "It's always more difficult because the teams have more desire against a champion.
"Above all, in September and October, La Liga and the ‘Champions’ are important because we need to leave the club at the top of the table to go to the World Cup with our heads clear."
Real start their domestic campaign away to Almeria on Sunday.
